Here's my 28 Graham Paige, 614 Victoria Coupe.

There's a long LONG way to go yet, but I'm having a blast......

Nice, I'll be watching this one.

Same here. Those Graham's are interesting cars.

Nice
 
Cool start ![cl
How much did you chop it?[;)
Keep us posted![P

Is that coupe really wide ? or are the rear wheel wells drawn in deeper ?

BillM 12-22-2010 08:30 PM

Thanks for the support everyone.......and to answer the questions;

4" chop - I'm just over 6', so I had to keep that in mind....as well, I'm hoping to channel it about 4" so I coudn't get too carried away with the chop.......but damn I wanted to........

Yes, it is very wide. Everything about the car is large. I did a Model A a few years ago, and it seems so small when compared to this thing. Keeping everything proportioned may be a task, so feel free to comment as I go along.

It was my great Grandfathers car, so it has some sentimental value.

Long overdue update
 
I've made lots of progress since my last update, so here's a few pictures to prove that I haven't given up! lol. I've finished the metal work on the roof, the body, grill shell, etc. I built the grill insert, fabricated the frame, and mocked up the car more times then I would like to admit! I also fabbed and installed my own front crossmember, and shaped the 2 X 4 frame into frame horns up front. I've installed a "Welder Series" triangulated four link in the rear, and also used their transmission mount, and motor mounts. I'm in the midst of building the brackets for the front axle - a 48 Ford axle that I've made mounts and hairpins for. I think it's going to look ok, will post those pic's a little later to see what you all think.

Here's a few for now....

N.B. Unable to upload pic's right now? I keep getting errors...will try again later.....

Later:cool:

what motor are you planning to use? For me that makes a build. The more rare, the better. By the way, Amazing looking so far
